Listen: the best position is in The chair in your gynecologist exam room to get this checked out. Tell your partner he's a bit large in meantime....if he has any self esteem issues.

Sex positions: First off - sex should NOT be painful. When you say it hurt - were you sufficiently wet or used lubricant - a dry vagina can cause painful sex. Generally a position where the female can control penetration (ie on top) should be less painful assuming you have adequate vaginal secretions. Also - try to relax as you may be tightening up prior to penetration. Longer foreplay may help
